Eiffel Tower...

Eiffel Tower In October I asked Paris Breakfasts' readers for blog post and painting ideas. I got a lot of interesting suggestions...

CHOCOLATE Eiffel

One reader wanted me to visit the Eiffel Tower and:
  • To paint the Eiffel Tower
  • To go up in it
  • To eat at the Jules Verne Restaurant in the Eiffel Tower
I saw these bonbon-filled towers in La Mere du Famille's candy shop I'm not that keen on heights. And I don't paint monuments. Unless you call painting a macaron a Paris monument. I do.Eiffel Tower Consequently everywhere I turned in Paris I was confronted with an Eiffel Tower in one form or another. Was the Tour Eiffel stalking me? Then it became a misson to see how many I could find... This tower is definitively the iconic symbol of Paris.
Eiffel Tower If you walk into Bloomingdales, you will not see New York City's symbolic Big Apple everywhere. Not the case with Paris' Galerie Lafayette. This is one Tour Eiffel I could go for! Who doesn't love a snow globe?
I loved this Eiffel Tower...

Ok I am in love...I just found you via "Run Around Paris." The Lauderee was just about all I can handle! I can draw but it is a talent that I need to develop - I have always wanted to watercolor. Thank you for your lovely blog.

I so much enjoy the Parisian photos on your blog as well as the beautiful water colors. Paris is my favourite capital town in Europe, I've been there so many this. Here's another nice Eifel Tour photo, I am sure you know this view, don't you? :-))

Not a fan of monuments myself. I think i get stressed standing with all the tourists..

I did like the bread shop about a block away though, and the little old car they used for deliveries!
